The Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum, Inc. Is a not-for-profit corporation, dedicated to preserving the birthplace and raising public awareness of the wide-ranging legacy of the great social reformer, Susan B. Anthony, who was a pioneering feminist and suffragist as well as a noteworthy figure in the abolitionist, opposition to Restellism (opposition to abortion), and temperance movements of the 19th century. As part of its mission, the Museum will highlight the familial and regional influences which shaped Ms.Anthony's early life, by displaying the textiles and furnishings of that period, as well as the literature and other memorabilia associated with her later career.

Nice, small museum highlighting Ms. Anthony's early years and chronicling her life as well. Worth the visit if you're in the area, and easy to do in an hour.

A small house, where she lived until she was six or seven. Not prepossessing, but interesting. Our docent was new, and not super informative, but pleasant and she tried. Others are more erudite.

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and had a guide with just 3 of us. Yet, he took time to explain the simple home, the history of Suan B Anthony's family and the many causes she was involved with-- abolition, temperance, women's rights, Restellism. There is also information on others involved in the movements. There is only one actual artifact... More

Great place to learn about the women's rights movement in this country. Not just about Susan B. Anthony but also about a number of other women who were an important part of the movement. Still amazing that it took 150 years from our founding before women could vote. Lots of reading involved here about Susan's early history and then about... More

This isn't as advertised or landmarked for people passing through as I expected. Its in a scenic location and the entrance fee is reasonable. It is nicely renovated and with lots of information. However, sometimes I thought the info was choppy. Its a self-guided tour and you dont have workers everywhere breathing down ur neck.

This property is owned by a "group" with an anti-choice agenda. Therefore, there have, at least in the past, been exhibits which misrepresent Susan B Anthony's views. They refused to remove the exhibit, even in the face of criticism from academics considered experts on Anthony from Rutgers University. That said, I am really glad that there is now a spot... More

Dear Jeanne J, I am confused about your Trip Advisor Post and encourage you to come and take a look at our exhibits with me, so please contact me at colleen@susanbanthonybirthplace.org. Whereas, your comments seem that maybe you haven't had the opportunity to come and see what Susan B Anthony stood. A diverse group of scholars from Universities and Colleges... More

A must visit for anyone interested in the struggles for women's rights. The guide, who is the director, made the life and times of Susan B. Anthony come alive. The tour was an educational and thoroughly enjoyable experience!

We arrived as it was closing, but the attendant saw we were from out of state and let us in. She was very courteous and told us everything we wanted to know about Susan and the hiking trails around the area. Definitely recommend this place to everyone.
